Each year, approximately 45,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with epilepsy. For approximately 30% of these children, the seizures are unresponsive to anti-epileptic drugs. Uncontrolled seizures can be catastrophic to the development of the child, especially if they occur in infancy.
If the child is considered drug-resistant, and the focus of the seizures can be localized in the brain, surgery to either disconnect or remove that part of the brain can be performed in an attempt to stop the seizures.
